Parade

Fireworks 3

As far as I know, the only parade that has traveled the streets in my town of late was the Pride Parade. I don’t think there was a parade for July 4th and American Independence. We watched the fireworks from a big box parking lot near the grounds where the display was actually happening. There was a parade of sorts in the parking lot with schools of fish children darting around squealing and chasing each other. Three cheers for the red, white, and blue.

    To celebrate the Bicentennial, we waited for the parade at the gas station on the corner where highway 237 dead-ended at 66. The station owner, Booby, gave us twists of paper from a little cardboard box filled with sawdust. The twists exploded when we slammed them down next to our bare feet on the pavement. I don’t remember any of the floats, but I remember the feel of those wood shavings on my skin when I stirred my finger through the box.
